    coloured shirt, for less formal a light blue
    shirt will still give you a conservative

Role Play
Hand out a business card to your partner
Business Card Etiquette
  • Give and receive business cards with both hands
  • When giving a business card ensure that your
    contact information points toward the recipient

Grooming And Business Etiquette
  • Communication

Its About People
  • Show respect and courtesy to everyone, regardless
    of their position within a company
  • Always look at it from the recipients
  • Limit, even eliminate, profanity and coarse

  • Honor other people's time
  • Start and end meetings on time
  • Give reasonable notice for projects
  • If you can't make a deadline, say what
    you can do as an alternative
  • Be on time - arrive at least five minutes before
    the scheduled time for all business occasions
  • If you know that you will be late, call to let
    your contact know offer to reschedule

The Cellular Phone
  • When using a cell phone, speak in hushed tones
  • Respect the personal space and try to speak in
    places 10-20 feet or more away from the closest
  • Set the ring tone at a low level with a tune that
    is soft, gentle, and not annoying
  • Move the ring to vibrate in any situation like a
    church, in a theater, a workshop, or a meeting
    where a ringing sound would prove disturbing

The Telephone
  • When you receive a phone call, identify yourself
    professionally by giving your first and last name
    and your department
  • Answer the phone with some enthusiasm or warmth
  • Know how to put people on hold and keep them
    there respectfully and how to transfer calls

Activity Meeting a Client
Body Language
  • Body language can say more than words. A recent
    university study on how people receive
    information had these results
  • 55 of what we learn from others comes from their
    body language
  • 38 of what we learn from others comes from their
    tone of voice
  • 7 of what we learn from others comes from the
    words they say
